Field Trip: Eagle Creek Earth Discovery Center (EC/Toddler only)
September 27, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am$6
Let’s visit the great outdoors at Eagle Creek Earth Discovery Center!
Friday, September 27th 10:00-11:30 a.m.
$6 per child Adults: FREE
Students will spend 10-15 minutes inside reviewing our five senses, and then we’ll head out on the trail for an easy 30-minute hike and use four of our senses as we explore the natural world. Sniff, look, listen, and touch (except for the poison ivy), but please don’t eat the bugs! Since this program already includes an outdoor hike, we recommend choosing topics other than “Seasonal Hike” if you will be doing more than one topic
Pond Study Outdoor Opportunity
The park is very excited to introduce the center’s new geothermal pond, made possible by grants from 3M and the Eagle Creek Park Foundation. Students will learn about pond life and ecosystems and use dip nets to scoop for pond creatures. . Muddy shoes and clothes are a possibility — please bring raingear and waterproof footwear.
“The most important lesson is to teach children that they are a part of nature. Everything that they do in their everyday lives can affect the natural world.”
–Leah Frenzel, Earth Discovery Center Naturalist
